Choosing appropriate timestep for FDTD and PIC algorithms

I'm doing some particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations of propagation of short pulses in plasmas with a widely used code. This code uses Yee's field solver. So, the timestep must be lower than the Courant ...

Choosing good modelling method for solving Boltzmann equation

I'm writing a solver for Boltzmann Equations (BE) including a force term in rarefied plasma, for my PhD. The aim is to see if an instability occurs inside an electric streamer (theoretically it should,...

Tackling multiscale problem in numerical simulation

In a dusty plasma system there are more than one component with different masses, i.e, electrons, ions,neutrals and dust grains. Accordingly, there are more than one temporal and spatial scales ...

Simple particle-in-cell examples

I am studying about the 1D EM-PIC (Electro Magnetics using particle-in-cell) simulation. I want to have a simultaneous time-integration of the electric/magnetic fields plus the motion of free charges ...
